Evernote: A 0-to-60 MPH Guide - 218 views

  •  
    "Evernote is many things to many people because it's so powerful. But for the same reason, Evernote's purpose is vague enough that it can be hard to get started with it. First, you have to figure out what it can do for you. Here's a guide to how to think about Evernote, so you can get better at using it."

    The suburb of Saffron Park lay on the sunset side of London, as red and ragged as a cloud of sunset. It was built of a bright brick throughout; its sky-line was fantastic, and even its ground plan was wild. It had been the outburst of a speculative builder, faintly tinged with art, who called its architecture sometimes Elizabethan and sometimes Queen Anne, apparently under the impression that the two sovereigns were identical. It was described with some justice as an artistic colony, though it never in any definable way produced any art. But although its pretensions to be an intellectual centre were a little vague, its pretensions to be a pleasant place were quite indisputable. The stranger who looked for the first time at the quaint red houses could only think how very oddly shaped the people must be who could fit in to them. Nor when he met the people was he disappointed in this respect. The place was not only pleasant, but perfect, if once he could regard it not as a deception but rather as a dream. Even if the people were not "artists," the whole was nevertheless artistic. That young man with the long, auburn hair and the impudent face-that young man was not really a poet; but surely he was a poem. That old gentleman with the wild, white beard and the wild, white hat-that venerable humbug was not really a philosopher; but at least he was the cause of philosophy in others. That scientific gentleman with the bald, egg-like head and the bare, bird-like neck had no real right to the airs of science that he assumed. He had not discovered anything new in biology; but what biological creature could he have discovered more singular than himself? Thus, and thus only, the whole place had properly to be regarded; it had to be considered not so much as a workshop for artists, but as a frail but finished work of art. A man who stepped into its social atmosphere felt as if he had stepped into a written comedy.

      I'm going to try this with a couple of my classes next week. I promise to let you know how it goes!

      We'll be using this on our snowdays. Kids and teachers will meet in scheduled classes and continue to work using this as one of our tools.

      could also be used if you are sick and have a sub... maybe questions could be answered from home
    • John Marr
       
      This is great for PD or extra help. I am going to try it out.
    • Oktavian Mantiri
       
      Will definitely try this... especially with my extesion classes

      I once held a department meeting when I was out of the building using this. I have also used it while showing a movie to classes; students can comment and get questions answered right away.

      I've used it during a video in class. Kids are able to pose questions to each other, provide comments, state their opinions and express themself. Worked great.

      I have also used this at a conference so that our group could backchat during a key presenter

      Plan to use it for discussion during class movie showing, for which I have in the past used Meebo rooms (no longer available) or piratepad: http://the-ed-rush.blogspot.com/2008/11/talking-through-movie.html This looks like it might work very well.

      Recently I had 9th graders talking to each other and me while they read a selection from their text. A couple of students did not like it, but most said it was helpful in understanding the material they were reading.

      I use this often during my PBL activities. As students are researching, they post links to websites that are helpful for others and they post their ideas. At the end of the lesson, we look over the list one last time and make our whole-class decision based on our findings. My 5th graders love it and it has made their problem solving much better since it is based on research and collaboration.

    4th graders used Today's Meet during Social Studies. They provided details related to a topic's main idea while studying a region of the United States. Worked great!

    Quick chat rooms on the fly.

    Kids communicate without talking and see each others words...very cool.

    This site is wonderful for younger students and older ELLs. Using exquisite art graphics from an extensive library of images children create online storybooks. The fanciful and beautiful graphics inspire the creator to write a story. The program then publishes the online book with a default "private" setting. This site appears to be carefully monitored and supervised. Excellent for ELA.
